I’d like to welcome author Tracey Sinclair to the blog! If you’re a fan of smart and snarky paranormal romances I highly recommend her series, the Cassandra Bick Chronicles. Tracey sat down with Cassandra (the heroine of her series) to chat about the holidays and I’m sharing this fun post with you today, along with a giveaway! Let’s get right to it…


Cass’s Christmas Questionnaire with Tracey Sinclair

What does Christmas mean to you?
Christmas used to depress me – my parents are dead and for years I wasn’t exactly overly endowed in the friendship department – but it’s changed in the last few years. It’s a busy time of year for my vampire-human dating agency, Dark Dates, for a start – vampires have realised it’s the one time of year they are actually allowed to sparkle without being completely tragic, and have embraced it wholeheartedly as the shameless tarts they are – and last year I spent it with my friends, Medea and Katie, which made it feel more like a celebration than my usual lunch alone with the cat. I do also try and remember those who have it worse than me, though, and help out at the Crisis for Christmas homeless shelter in the run up to the holiday.

What’s the worst present you’ve ever received?
I’m not sure they’re the worst – they’ve come in depressingly handy – but the least romantic presents have to be the series of guns Cain has bought me. Somehow it never occurs to him that a girl would like a gift that is something more than a weapons upgrade.

What would you buy the people in your life?
Oh, well, Medea is easy – she loves anything stylish, so a lovely scarf or piece of jewellery. Her girlfriend Katie is a geek like me, so maybe the Avengers on blu-ray – I think she has a not-so-secret crush on Scarlett Johansson, so it would probably be doubly welcome.  Laclos – god, something to wear, maybe, since he always seems remarkably short of clothing. I have no idea about Cain – I don’t know where you’d buy illegal weapons! What do you buy the man who wants nothing and has a secret stash of gold bars? Some nice food, maybe, since he’s always complaining that I have nothing in my kitchen to eat. To be fair he only ever seems interested in unwrapping me…

Santa’s calling – have to been naughty or nice?
I’m guessing the whole ‘crazy flings with the oversexed vampire and the smoking hot angel’ probably tips me onto the naughty list, right? In fact I’m probably going to hell for the angel-sex anyway, so Santa’s the least of my worries…

What’s your Christmas wish?
I know it’s a cliché – but if I can’t have peace on Earth, I’d like peace in my little corner of it. A new year where nobody blew up a building at me or tried to eat my friends would be fantastic.

Who would you want to kiss under the mistletoe – Cain or Laclos?
Oh, God. Do I have to choose? Can’t I have both? It’s Christmas, after all…

Tracey Sinclair’s series of Dark Dates books is available on Amazon and Kobo. All profits from the sale of A Vampire Christmas until January 2014 will be donated to homeless charities.

    Ooh, that’s a tough one. I’d have to go with Curran also. He is so powerful, loyal, funny, sexy and sweet. What’s not to love.
